Absolutely brilliant !
Re-visited after being disappointed in December and it was beautiful this time !
Staff are amazing ! Food was so tasty ! Drinks were great ! All in all it was fabulous.
The perfect Persian restaurant !
Consistently the best Persian food in London and I've been to a few! The lightest, fluffiest rice ever. Bursting with flavour, the sides are as good as the mains. Pretty, cosy interiors too. Good for a party or a date. Love it.
We had a confirmed reservation at another Persian restaurant we had never visited before which we they re-confirmed by phone an hour earlier. When we arrived at the scheduled time they said they could not find our reservation and were so cold and unwelcoming that...we left and went straight to Hafez where we had enjoyed a meal years before. They were busy but seated us right away and were as warm and pleasant as their decor and ambience. The food was delicious and traditional, reminiscent of the home made meals we grew up with and still enjoy.More
When the pub we were going to go to for Sunday roast informed us its kitchen was closed, we went up the street to Hafez. It was very busy, but we got a table right away. Although the service was spotty, the food was very...good.More
Overall this place is fantastic! My friend and I got the veg and vegan food respectively and we could not be happier overall. I got the ash-e-mash and was so happy how savoury and tasty it was. Excellent portion size. I also got the kashk-e...Bademjan and my God, how delicious it was. I literally moaned on how good it was. I got another order for takeaway. For the main my friend had the Bademjan and Fesenjan. She said the former was not the best she’s had but we both agreed the Fesenjan was tasty. I got the Tahdig as well and while the price made me wince for dried rice, it was DELICIOUS and reminded me of childhood. The staff let us leisurely sit for hours. Incredible interior decor.More
Loved the decor in here and the meat was very tasty however the dishes don’t come with any dips making the meal dry - unles of course you order a starter sauce which is £6… slightly pricey but again tasty.
Beautiful ambiance/friendly service/ more importantly delicious food .
We visited Hafez so many times before and always felt satisfied and this time a friend surprised us for my birthday dinner and invited me and few friends and made a memorable birthday dinner,
I read the reviews before deciding to eat in Hafez. I ordered salad olvie with bread and fesenjoon for main. Dough to drink.
Salad olvie was ok. Bread was not fresh and hard. dough was stale. I had to order another drink. Fesenjoon was probably...the worst I ever had. Few chicken pieces in it were tasteless and it seemed they were cooked separately and added to khorosht. Rice was just looked and tasted like boiled rice. I ordered Persian ice-cream(bastani) it was nice but I had to wait for five minutes for it to get melted and it was so frozen that spoon would not get in it. The whole experience was disappointing..More

As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an
experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
